PIKEVILLE -- South Johnston batted around in the top of the sixth inning and cruised past Charles B. Aycock, 8-5, in the Eastern Carolina 3-A Conference tournament championship game Tuesday evening.

The Trojans have won three ECC tournament crowns since joining the league in 2009-10.

Meredith Burroughs swatted her sixth home run of the season and 33rd of her career during early-inning action. Senior outfielder Jenna Van Horn drove in three runs for the Golden Falcons, who have won four ECC tournament championships since 2006.

Aycock (13-9 overall) plays host to an undetermined opponent Friday in opening-round action of the N.C. High School Athletic Association playoffs.
